Abstract

Extraordinary advances in stem cell research have initiated an era of hope for strategies to treat intractable human diseases. Personalized regenerative treatment using stem cells is expected to accelerate continuous investment and research efforts throughout the world. Despite of their constraints, adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells have been used for cell transplantation for several intractable diseases. Besides adult and embryonic stem cells, the recent studies of induced pluripotent stem cells widened the possibility of patient-specific cell therapy, drug discovery, and disease modeling. This review focuses on the developments and potential applications of the stem cells for the treatment of peripheral neuropathy.
